Happy Bastille Day!
This post is available to paid subscribers only. As always, thank you for your generous support, which helps me continue in the fight to protect the sex-based rights of women and girls and to stop the abolition of sex.
A few days ago, I gave a talk to U.S. signatories of the Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights called “Why I Think We’re Much Farther Along in the Movement than it Might Appear.” Please give the Declaration a read and sign it if you agree! In the meantime, you’re welcome to watch the talk on YouTube or read it on the website of Women’s Declaration International USA. Also, WDI USA recently announced its support for Lesbian Bill of Rights International - an international network of lesbian radical feminist organizations.
Here is clip with me and Amie Ichikawa from Woman II Woman talking about the Dana Rivers case. Rivers (born David Warfield before taking a job as a high school teacher and telling his students all about his “sex change”) is a man who was convicted of viciously murdering a lesbian couple and their teenage son in California. Last December he was convicted on all counts. This past June, he was sentenced to three terms of life in prison without parole. Because of California’s SB 132 (the The Transgender Respect, Agency, and Dignity Act), he requested and was granted the right to be housed in the California women’s prison.
This post continues on a post I made a few days ago about the case of L.W. v. Skrmetti, where the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit stayed an injunction. The injunction had blocked (statewide) a Tennessee law prohibiting the provision of puberty blockers and wrong-sex hormones to minors from taking effect. The 6th Circuit’s ruling means that the law is currently in effect.
